still cool today, but on saturday and sunday, should warm up a little bit. that's good for the half a million homeless people after the tsunami. but the winds do shift a little bit on shore as we go through sunday. that looks like the first chance of any contamination going back over land. so hopefully they got two or three days to get things under control hopefully. yesterday, back home here in the states, what a day. we were into the 80s through texas. 74, record high in denver. kansas city was gorgeous. and now that warm air is going to spread. it is going to be warm today from kansas city to st. louis, through the ohio valley, and eventually all that warm air arriving for the east coast. what a great end to winter, what a fabulous st. paddy's day this is going to be. with the warm air in the middle of the country, the only trouble spots, rain on the cold front through minnesota and the dakotas and cloudy weather here, unsettled conditions through the intermountain west. that's about it. it is a really nice day today. look at dallas, 82 degrees. kansas city, 78 with an outside shot at hitting 80 degrees.
